This is one of the out of the way campgrounds, and it was AWESOME to say the least. We were there 10 days, and really hated to leave. It's about 30 miles south of St. Mary's entrance and about 60 miles from West Glacier, but East Glacier is about 15 miles away. East Glacier isn't near as commercialized as the west side, so fewer amenities in town, so if you need something other than gas or a drink, drive the extra 10 miles to Browning to do your shopping. The campground is in bear country, so they do a good job of making sure you keep your sites clean and free of anything that would be an attractant. And this is the 1st campground that I have even been to in "bear" country where I actually saw one on the hiking trail. It is 1st come, no reservations so be there EARLY...like 7 AM early because if not, someone else will beat you to the punch. The sites are a mixture of heavily treed and open sites that are "lakeside." We were blessed to get site #87 which was a lakeside site so there was a good breeze everyday to keep things cooled off, plus they are the biggest sites available. The camp hosts do a good job of interacting with everybody and there is a strong Park Ranger presence in case things get out of hand, but this was never a problem. There are ranger programs almost every night but we never attended any. There are also several good trailheads that originate from within the park for hiking. There is a good campstore there that has a small restaurant with limited items, souveniers, and a few food items to cook with...and decent coffee in the AM. There is ABSOLUTELY no wifi or cell service within the park...have to drive about 10 miles up the road to find it. Overall, this is by far one of the best campgrounds we have ever been to and we are already talking about going back next year. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

Thursday, August 17 Two Medicine Campground (NPS), Glacier National Park, MT, $10. Site 92, East Glacier, dump station, no hookups, first come This is a beautiful campground located north of East Glacier off of route 49. Route 49 can be driven from the south up to Two Medicine but vehicles towing or over 21 feet are not allowed to drive the last two miles around the mountain to join 89. There is even a short tunnel in the beginning of the drive with a height restriction of 13'. When leaving the campground RV's must head back south on 49 passed the Historic Glacier Lodge to East Glacier then on route 2 over to 89 south or north. There are 91 sites located in three loops - many are in the woods and others along the shore. The ones in the woods don't seem to be that level. We arrived around 7:30am and five sites had just opened up but within an hour the rest were taken. We had site 91 with a view to the lake but right next to water, bathhouse and trash. Across the street was Pray Lake where the hiking starts and one can sit on park benches to view the lake and mountains. Great lake for kayaking, fishing and even swimming. It joins Two Medicine Lake near the beginning of the campground. The bathhouse was just redone. Ranger shows at night and we have seen more rangers patrolling in this campground than any other we have been to on our trip. There are three backcountry campgrounds located in the mountains above this campground. Two Medicine Campground has hikes, lakes, swimming, fishing, boating, ranger programs and just stunning views. Our site looked out to Pray Lake and was surrounded by the mountains. There was a a lot of wildlife spotted in the campground and on the hiking trails here - no mountain lions but beavers, birds, black and grizzly bears and lots of moose. It seems that the 2015 fire drove a number of moose down from the north into these mountains, lakes and campground. Most of them have stayed and babies born. Great stop! We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We had an excellent site right on Pray Lake with a view of the mountains surrounding us. We set our chairs up at the water's edge and enjoyed all Glacier had to offer. The campground never filled and this was due to the closure of many of the hiking trails from Two Medicine as a result of the wildfires in the area. There was some smoke, but nothing that would result in closure of the campground. East Glacier is nearby, where cell coverage was 4G/LTE. This is our favorite Glacier campground. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

A great gem, nestled in next to the mountains and lake on the East side of Glacier National Park, it's first come first serve, and may fill at certain times, but we got the pull through site we wanted by simply arriving early and waiting till the folks left. Site was reasonably level and spacious.
There are no hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill, bathrooms were old but clean and functional. We were lucky enough to miss the fires, the morning we were leaving, a gentleman that was waiting for our site, informed us that the Going to the Sun Road was closed due to a fire. With the low cost, and absolutely gorgeous area, we would certainly stay here again. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

What a gem this park is!! One of the most beautiful National Park CG settings we have experienced! Staff was very friendly and restrooms were very clean. If you have a sizeable rig, get there early!! There are people cruising the park in the morning to get one of the larger sites that are in the front near the meadow and lake. Drove the loops twice before we found a great site. A lot of sites in the inner loops will not accommodate an RV or trailer, especially anything over 25'. Kind of a bummer that the big sites that can accommodate a big rig can be taken up by a tent. But, it is "first come first served" and the sites are as much their right as anybody else. The store and boat dock area are great and an easy walk or bike ride away. We will definitely be back! We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We found Two Medicine to be like a park within a park. It is separate from the main part of Glacier and therefore quieter and calmer. There are some amazing sites facing the water, but all the sites are nice for primitive camping. No hookups at all. There is a dump station at the park's entrance and they have several times a day when running generators is allowed. The campfire circles at the park were the best I've ever been too: from a Blackfoot singer, Jack Gladstone, to a conversation with an Old Goat. Amazing stuff. Near the campground there is a small store with gifts and snacks as well as a marina where you can take a tour boat or rent kayaks or canoes. Don't miss the Going to the Sun Road. We also drove up to Waterton Park in Canada one day which was absolutely lovely! We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This was our first time camping in a National Parks camp ground and we were very pleased with what we got.  Above all, peace and tranquility.  No cell phone ringing, no Wi-Fi computer distractions and no TV. Just nature to watch and breath taking scenery to absorb.  Get there early in the day because the sites soon fill up and we noticed numerous people trawling around looking for a change of location early each day. Once you have located a suitable site it is then self registration but this is routinely checked by the park staff. Fees can be paid in US or Canadian funds and while we were there the dollar and the looney were taken on par.   There are numerous washrooms dotted around and some specifically for the disabled.  All are flush toilets and have running cold water to the sinks.  Electric plugs are also available inside the washroom blocks so connecting hair dryers or shavers isn't a problem.   These washrooms are cleaned daily.   Around the camp ground there are also numerous fresh water taps available but these do not accept a hose connection so filling your portable water tanks is more of a challenge (unless there is an adapter out there somewhere).  You can use the hoses at the dump station to fill your freshwater tank but this is on the way out. Just outside of the camp ground is a well stocked and very reasonably priced general store, selling just about everything you could need for a few days camping in the woods. The lake is adjacent to the camp ground and provides excellent leisure resources for fishing, kayaking and swimming, etc.  The area has plenty of good walks but this is bear country so bring your spray and bear bangers.  Its also a good idea to pack lots of bug spray because the mosquitos are more problematic than the bears!   Every evening the park staff present a different interpretive talk that lasts about an hour.  If I have any criticism it is that a tiny two man tent is allowed to occupy a space that would be more suited to a 45' motor home while a more suitable sized site is left empty. A little more regulation might maximize the potential of this camp ground.  Loop C is more in tune with small units while A and B are capable of handling the larger rigs. I will definitely return to this location in the future.  We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Absolutely the finest National Park camping in the country but don't tell anyone. All of the camping is first come first served basis. There are bigger rig camping spots right next to the lake. This is dry camping at its finest. Our solar panels got plenty of sun and we even got DirecTV on our dish, life is good. The scenery is specular and the rangers are the best. There is plenty of hiking, free fishing, ranger evening presentations. Did I mention the scenery! We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Senior rate. Large rigs can access park by coming up MT-49 from US-2. MT-49 has a 21' vehicle restriction north of the park. Note that sites 1 thru 36 are now no generator sites. Very quiet here, no phone, broadband or TV. Could see bears from our site. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

A quality National Park campground. No hook ups or showers, but don't go to most NP campgrounds if you need them. Good evening programs, well maintained and patrolled. In peak season, arrive early in the week if you need a bigger site for larger RV. Scenery around park and most views from campsites is breathtaking. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

My favorite Glacier Park campground. No hook-ups but beautiful scenery: if you are by the lake. There are a few large rig sites, but most are for smaller rigs. Great location for hiking trails, boating, etc. It's located a little off the beaten trail, but that's the beauty of this campground. Also, there's a tour boat on the lake. Spent a week here in a 34' 5th wheel. Rate was for Golden Age. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is as close to nature as you can get in an rv. Scenery is fantastic and the peace and quite beyond compare. We camped here for four days and could have stayed forever (except in the winter). Like all N.P. campgrounds there are no hookups but a dump station is right at the entrance. If showers were available this would be a 10+. Best campground in Glacier which is the best N.P. in the country We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The Two Medicine Campground has 99 sites, no hook-ups but can house larger rigs, and has bathrooms and potable water. It’s a fairly remote campground, but we liked it because of that fact. It’s first come-first served. We camped at Two Medicine (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
